Eight Edible Rules

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
edible-rules-article-thcfEdibles have been in the negative spotlight for a while now, following a few reports that suggested the tasty treats had been the cause of murder and suicide. But are edibles really that dangerous? No. Not if you know what you’re doing. While ingesting THC and passing it through your digestive system does actually increase potency (from Delta-9 to Delta-11), edibles don’t usually make people freak out. But if you’re worried about taking too much, here are eight rules for ingesting edibles.
 
  • Body mass, gender, body chemistry, metabolism, and age all effect how an edible will treat you. When buying edibles, ask your bud tender what they would recommend for your body type and age. THC effects everyone differently and it’s important to know how strong something might be before you eat too much.
  • If you’re a heavy cannabis user, an edible won’t effect you the same as someone who’s a newbie. If your bud tender isn’t asking you if you’ve smoked before, ask them what they think and if they have a different recommendation. 
  • Eating edibles on an empty stomach can have negative consequences. It is recommended that you treat edibles much like Vicodin or Percocet. 
  • Measure your edible doses in milligrams. For example, if you get a 100mg bar of chocolate and it splits in to 10 pieces, each piece will roughly contain 10mgs.
  • Taking less right off the bat is better than eating the whole edible. If you think it won’t effect you like others, you’re probably wrong. While you can always eat more of the edible, you can’t make yourself eat less. As a newbie edible eater, you need to pay attention to this kind of thing. 
  • Every edible making company has different dosages, which can prove to be difficult when you’re trying to find one you like. The best suggestion is to try multiple different companies until you find one that you like and that gives you the feeling that you’re looking for.
  • Don’t expect the same high that you get from smoking a bowl. Edibles effect the mind differently and also because of the small amount of membranes that you have in the stomach. The THC doesn’t absorb in the same way in your stomach as it does in your lungs.
  • Always remember that as of right now, there is no mandatory THC testing when it comes to edibles. Edibles are extremely hard to dose and Colorado hopes to have an edible testing department soon. Edible companies jump all over the place with their dosing information. As said above, find something that you like and stick with it!

What Is A "Marijuana Tolerance Break" And Should You Take One?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
tolerance-break-should-you-take-oneThere a handful of reasons why people take a break from consuming marijuana. The most likely reason is that you need to get a job, and that your desired employer drug tests. The second most common reason is that the break from consuming marijuana is court ordered do to forced rehab or probation or some other unfair reason. But another reason is what many refer to as a ‘marijuana tolerance break.’ A marijuana tolerance break is a good idea if you are not getting as high as you used to, and wish to get more out of the experience of consuming marijuana.
 
Most veteran marijuana consumers have been there one time or another. You puff and puff and puff, but you don’t seem to get that super baked feeling anymore. The quality of nugs or oil you are consuming likely isn’t the problem. The problem is likely that your tolerance is through the roof. This is becoming more and more prevalent as dabs grow in popularity. Most of the people I know that consume a large amount of dabs day in day out complain that they don’t get as high as they used to, and there’s just no way they can get high off of flower anymore, no matter what the quality is.
 
If this is you, maybe you should consider taking a marijuana tolerance break so your body’s tolerance level can go down. I know, taking a break from consuming marijuana doesn’t sound that appealing. I personally consume marijuana mainly to relax from stressful, work-filled days, and without marijuana I would probably go off on a person or two daily for being stupid. But, if you can handle the off days, I assure you it will be worth it. I took a few marijuana tolerance breaks during the last twenty plus years I’ve been consuming marijuana, and I can say first hand that the high you get when you start consuming again is well worth it. It felt like the first time all over again with the giggles and whatnot.
 
How long of a marijuana tolerance break one should consider taking depends on the individual. If you consume like Jay Smoker, you may want to take a week or two off (he smokes like a broken chimney). If you are like me, and work all day most days and can’t consume, a few days should be enough to get your tolerance level back in line. Of course, realize that once you start consuming again, your tolerance will go up again, so revisit the marijuana tolerance break approach again from time to time.
 
Realize that I’m saying take a break, not quit altogether. You would be taking a break in order to get higher in the future. Remember, quitters never prosper! Have you ever taken a marijuana tolerance break? If so, how did it go? Do you have any tips? How long did you go in between sessions?

Ten Stoner Life Hacks

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder

stoner-life-hacksWe know smoking weed can be a little bit stressful. Breaking bowls, spilling weed, lighting your hair on fire while trying to light a joint in a moving car with the window down. There’s many ways a peaceful smoke session can turn in to a nightmare. It’s important to know a few stoner life hacks in order to keep things easy. The following list of ten stoner hacks that you can use in order to keep your smoking stress free!

 

  • Putting a CD over your glass bowl will help to prevent you from spilling any weed! The center of the CD is small enough to keep the weed in but at the same time, keeps it from spilling out.
  • Have a clogged bowl? Pipe cleaners actually do work! They are perfect for sticking through your glass and scraping out the nasty resin on the inside. The best part? They’re super cheap and disposable so once they’re covered in grime, you can just toss them in the trash can!
  • Marijuana loses potency if you let light and heat get to it while it’s being stored. Fix this by cutting a roll of black construction paper and fixing it inside of your jar. This will keep your weed fresher for longer and prevent the light from getting in and ruining your buds!
  • If you don’t have a grinder around, you can use this simple method! Take a penny and clean it well, preferably with rubbing alcohol. Put the penny and your weed in a small pill bottle or jar and shake it vigorously. The penny will grind up the bud for you and it’ll leave you with the keif!
  • Having troubles with munchies? Schedule your smoking times around meal times. This way, you won’t eat as much because you’ll be eating at normal times anyway. This one is a little easier said than done, as I myself have trouble containing the munchies after I’ve smoked enough.
  • Grandparents sending you a bunch of birthday cards? Cut them up and use them as makeshift crutches if you don’t have any around! The hard paper will support your joint and make it easier to pass back and forth when you’re smoking with your friends!
  • Enjoy weed with a bit of fruity flavor? Place a few nuts in a leftover blunt wrapper and let them chill for a bit! The packaging will give your buds a little extra flavor and you can enjoy some strawberry flavored weed in your next bowl! 
  • Finding a good playlist online will help to keep your high level and enjoyable. If you’re not watching TV, music is the next best thing. Sometimes even better, rather than you wasting brain cells on the television. Slacker Radio is a great place to listen to music!
  • Putting a mint in your mouth when you have the munchies is a great way to curb your appetite! Mints also help with cotton mouth and the sometimes bad breath that comes with it! Keep a box of Altoids in your pocket at all times to avoid over eating and dying for a drink!
  • Did you know that a Nintendo Gamecube controller is the perfect place to hold your bong head up while you pack it? If you happen to still have a Gamecube, you can use the controller this way to make sure that you’re not accidentally dumping out all of your weed.
  • Some people like to blot honey on their joints in order to keep it from burning too quickly while smoking. This also will help with that awful canoe effect that sometimes happens, when the joint burns unevenly while being smoked.

Former Oregon Police Support Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
oregon-police-supportEven though some law enforcement officers support the idea of cannabis legalization, they are still bound to uphold the “law” and arrest those that are thought to be in possession of the plant. In Oregon, that issue is no more since the law has already passed but a few days before the polls, a letter was written by a coalition of law enforcement officers that came out with public support of Yes On 91. Judges, police, and sherifs contributed to the writing of the letter, saying that the treatment of marijuana as a crime has failed. “Arresting and citing thousands of people in Oregon and elsewhere for marijuana related crimes is a distraction to law enforcement and a misuse of taxpayer resources. The time and money spent should go to make our communities safer. Police resources should be focused on violent criminals, thieves, and criminal cartels.”
 
 
The passing of Oregon’s Measure 91 allows adults to possess up to eight ounces of cannabis at home and up to one in public. With the taxes from the recreational sales, Oregon hopes to fund school programs, law enforcement, and drug prevention/educational programs. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is now responsible for the regulation and monitoring of the new industry which will take full effect next year. Oregon joins Colorado and Washington, along with Washington DC and Alaska. Florida was hoping to join the legal medical marijuana market as well but the votes fell short in the sunshine state.
 
 
Oregon alone stands to make $17 million to $40 million annually from the recreational sale of cannabis. A recent revenue study from NerdWallet estimated that the numbers could skyrocket to $100 million. With the support of a good chunk of law enforcement, including Kris Olson, a retired US Attorney for the District of Oregon, Tony Ryan, a former Denver Police lieutenant, and Stephen Downing, a retired Los Angeles Police Department deputy sheriff, people should really begin to open their eyes to the possibilities of cannabis and a legal market, where everyone would benefit from the effects. 
 
 
Although there are still those who voice their opposition to the passing of Measure 91, such as Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis, the measure has successfully passed in the state of Oregon. People like Marquis are worried about the repeated “intoxicated driving” and “increased use by minors”. But the numbers in Washington and Colorado have not yet reflected such worries. It’s believed that the forbidden idea of cannabis is less appealing if it’s allowed, not to mention the money being spent to educate the children as compared to brain wash them to hate a plant. While only time will tell what will really happen in regards to these worries, it’s not thought that any real negative effects will come from the legalization of cannabis in the near future. In fact, there are only positive things happening in Washington and Colorado. Now it’s Oregon and Alaska’s turn to reap some of the benefits from a legal marijuana market.

Myths About Weed

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, December, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
myths-about-weed
Stoners love to tell each other “how to smoke” their weed. There have been countless myths that spin their way around the cannabis community. While some of these tales can be true, most of them aren’t. It’s about time to learn what’s true and what’s not in the weed community. Here are some myths that stoners claim are true but maybe… Not so much.
 
 
Slice Of Fruit
The idea of putting a slice of fruit in your weed bag seems like it might be a good one. But when you think about how nasty a bunch of bananas gets after a couple of days, it makes a little more sense. Fruit rinds will attract mold, flies, and possibly even ruin your stash. Instead of using fruit, we recommend using a humidifying pack or even using a leaf from the actual cannabis plant.
 
 
Dead Fish
Some people believe that putting a dead fish at the bottom of your grow hole will promote nutrients in the plant’s growth cycle. While rotting fish does indeed release nitrogen and elements that are necessary for healthy roots, you should absolutely let the fish fully decompose before sticking your plant in the hole with it.
 
 
Pee Plants
Urinating on your plants is not going to help you to get a better looking result. In fact, you could potentially kill your plants by doing this, as urine isn’t filtered and is incredibly strong if given to a plant. Stick to using distilled water and normal nutrients instead of peeing on your grow. 
 
 
Ice
Putting ice in the bong is rumored to be healthier for you as compared to using just normal water. Allegedly, the ice cools down the smoke and makes it easier on the lungs. The truth is, smoke is smoke. No matter what temperature you’re inhaling it at, smoke isn’t great for your lungs. 
 
 
Music 
Growing your plants around music is actually really good for them! Science has proven that plants that listen to music grow better as compared to their silent treatment counterparts. But keep in mind that the kind of music that you’re listening to effects the way the plants grow. Angry music may upset the plants. People recommend using classical or jazz in order to promote the growth of their plants. 
 
 
Bongs Get You Higher
Apparently, this isn’t true. However, most stoners will tell you differently. In 2000, NORML/MAPS did a study that said “water pipes filter out more psychoactive THC than they do other tars, thereby requiring users to smoke more to reach their desired effect.” We’re not too sure about this one… It’s probably worth testing personally.
 
 
Holding In Hits
If you still believe that holding hits of weed smoke in are getting you higher, you haven’t been paying attention. Holding in a hit doesn’t make you higher. The effect you feel from it is a result of your brain being deprived of oxygen. THC is absorbed in to your lungs within the first three seconds of you inhaling it. Holding in your hits will just result in you turning bright red and potentially passing out.
 
 
Soda For Plants
Coke can take the rust off of a bumper and clean the grime off of pennies so do you really think that a plant’s root system can handle an onslaught of syrup infused junk? Trying to flavor your buds with soda is a bad move. Stick to growing the plants correctly in the first place.
 
 
Resin
Resin is the tar residue left over in your pipe after you’ve smoked a bunch and forgot to clean your glass. While people do occasionally smoke this stuff when they’re out of bud, it isn’t really getting you that high. You might get a little bit of a “oh I’m a little stoned” but it won’t be anything compared to a massive bong hit of good weed.
